Understanding authorial intent and how to use this to develop analysis
In this lesson, we will look at the famous novelist Charles Dickens and the concept of authorial intent and apply this. We will do this by looking at the Gothic across his work, but particularly focusing on an extract from 'A Chrismtas Carol'. We will consider, in particular, why he may have chosen to incorporate elements of the Gothic in his writing for an intended purpose. Then, we will end on a quiz exploring what you have learned.
